Event description

Description

Join Rivers for Change and the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) for a paddle day on the lower Yuba to help kick off the Wild and Scenic Film Festival!

Bring your own boat, a lunch, and a change of clothes. Meet at 9am at Hammon Park. We will unload gear at the put in and then run a shuttle to the take out. Paddle goes rain or shine, please dress warmly, bring appropriate layers and rain gear for any weather (you may get splashed!). Free for those with their own boat, but donations are welcome. If you need a spot in a raft there is a small additional rental fee, $15 for adults, $10 for minors. Minors must be accompanied by a Guardian and know how to swim. Participants will be required to sign a liability release and those with their own boat must bring and wear a lifejacket.

The paddle will be from Hammon Grove Park to Hallwood Blvd (about 7.5 miles). It is a class I/II section with a required portage around Daguerre Point Dam, which is the site of a proposed new hydropower project. You will also have an opportunity to view one of SYRCL's innovative restoration projects, and view gold mining tailings (viewable from outer space) left over from hydraulic mining.

It's the perfect chance to get on the river and learn about the Yuba River with SYRCL's River Science Director, Gary Reedy, before enjoying a weekend of inspiring films at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival.

Paddles Up!
